Since we’ve decided to make the kitchen renovation a priority we also need to figure out how we’ll live without a kitchen. We’re currently imagining that this room will just disappear from use so the rest of the house is going to have to pitch in.
I’ll start with items that we have:
- Chest freezer in the basement – so all our frozen food can be stored in this
- Bar fridge – we’ll have to cook in smaller portions as it’s difficult going from a large fridge to this size
- Utility sink – this is located in our laundry area and needs a good scrub but we can easily do dishes in it
- Microwave – this currently lives in the kitchen but can be moved anywhere int he house
The hard part is going to be without a stove or oven. So I put a call out for a toaster oven on a freecycle group that I’m a part of. In no time at all I had an offer! It was 2 cities over which isn’t very far in my neck of the words. $5 worth of gas and less than an hour later I’m the proud owner of a toaster oven.
Do you have any tips to help us prepare for this reno?
